Beat Seasonal Allergies with Air Purification06/24/2015We’re already in the middle of what many of us consider to be the worst time of year – pollen season. No matter when your allergies bug you the most, everyone wants to relieve the irritation that allergies bring with them every year. That’s where air purification comes in to play. We’ve already discussed the benefits that air filtration can offer, so why not learn more about one more tool that can make breathing easier for you. No home is immune from indoor air quality issues, and your home certainly isn’t free from letting the outdoor air into your home when pollen, dust and ragweed fill the spring, summer and fall air. The goal is to make you more comfortable by reducing or completely eliminating those irritants from impacting your home’s air. And that’s something that all allergy sufferers have in common. There are several things that you can do to reduce tracking allergens inside your home too. Take off your shoes before you come back inside after working outside After completing20, go inside and take a quick shower to rinse off any allergens that may be on your clothes or body If you have any pets that have been outdoors, make sure you are brushing and bathing them frequently so that they don’t track in allergens Among homeowners, there can be some confusion as to the difference between air filtration and air purification. Essentially, air filters are a part of air purification systems like the PureAir™ system, but do not free the air of as many particles as an air purifier does. This is mostly due to the fact that the PureAir™ system is composed of a three-part system which includes a traditional air filter, UVA light and a metal insert that is coated with a light-activated catalyst. In the end, what really matters is undertaking those aggressive allergies and making your home an oasis of relief when the outdoor air is working to make it difficult to bear. Having a comfortable home that you want to be in is important and something that we as homeowners aim for when getting a home. Besides, who wants to come home after a long day and feel miserable?
